Anita Susan Brenner The phone rang. It was my favorite editor. What’s it about this week? She asked. Postmodernism! I said, excitedly. No way, she said. Write a funny column, But Carol, I whined, I’m not funny. Yes, you are. But Carol, I whimpered, why can’t Joe do it? I got nowhere. It’s obvious Joe is her favorite. The reason for my malaise is that our dog, Miss Audrey Hepburn, a black Lab-Chow mix from the Pasadena Humane Society, misses her boyfriend, Dune.

Set in San Rafael Hills in Pasadena, donors gathered at the home of John and Juli Miller to be recognized for their sponsorship of Hillsides' annual benefit, "A Marvelous Party," to be held on Feb. 24 at 6 p.m. Giving thanks to supporters who donated $500 or more to the gala, the benefit sponsor recognition reception is an opportunity to "mix with many of our supporters we don't see on Hillsides' campus frequently, but that give to Hillsides," said...

As a reward for being named La Cañadan of the Year, Terry Walker received plenty of praise Wednesday afternoon - even if she had to withstand a bit of ribbing on the way. More than 100 people came to the La Cañada Kiwanis Club's tribute to Walker at Descanso Gardens, including four City Council members, Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Capt. David Silversparre and Walker's parents, who were celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. Walker, whose accomplishments include three years as president of the La Cañada Flintridge Chamber of Commerce, launching the weekly farmers market, adding snow and reindeer to the Festival in Lights, and helping at her husband Woody's pet clinic, knew she was in for a roast.

Bea Abbey We don't know what Hwy. 49 in the Gold Country is like now, but some years ago when we RVed that historical area every little town looked hundreds of years old and we presume that they still do. Coloma, Sutter's Creek, Angel's Camp, Columbia, etc. The hills were dotted with old shacks and the "new" look, mobile homes. Anyhow, we stopped at Angel's Camp, the town made famous by Mark Twain and his jumping frogs of Calaveras County. We walked the two blocks of the town and tried to imagine what it was like so long ago. We then traveled on to Columbia, the almost capital of California.

Dining with Duvall by Lynn Duvall Last Saturday, restaurant owners Mel Maddox and Connie Rameriz threw a second anniversary party for their loyal customers at Havana Beach Café on Honolulu Avenue in Montrose. Since I'm on their mailing list, I got a special VIP ticket that offered dinner for two at $12.99, part of a package of special offers for the combination anniversary-Father's Day weekend. Sensing a good photo opportunity, I dropped by in between the lunch and dinner rush to catch the cigar maker in action.

Le Betulle ("The White Birch") Ristorante remains one of the best kept secrets in La Cañada Flintridge. Its unassuming location next door to a car wash perhaps keeps some people from discovering the restaurant, which is a mistake. The menu centers on north western Italian fare, and the preparation and presentation are top notch. Its chefs, all of whom are remaining under the new ownership of Grayr Agadzhanyan, are turning out the same wonderful dishes — including the divine Ossobuco alla Piemontese — that have always been famous staples at Le Betulle.

Bob and I have been dining often at Havana Beach Cafe lately because the owners, Mel and Connie Barauskas, added my favorite Cuban treat to the menu - the media noche sandwich. The menu has always included a grilled Cuban sandwich made with the same ingredients as the media noche - ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese and pickles. The Cuban sandwich is enfolded in crispy-crusted Cuban bread. The media noche requires a similarly thin bread, but it's a sweet bread, a little like egg bread with a shiny smooth crust.

On April 27, Church of the Lighted Window celebrated its 111th anniversary with a catered luncheon provided by an anonymous donor. Ninety-four people, mostly regular church attendees, showed up for a lunch of roast beef sandwiches, potato salad, and 111 cupcakes made by a member of the church. ?I was really happy with the turnout,? commented Pastor Skip Lindeman before joking, ?I?m really looking forward to the 222nd anniversary.? Church of the Lighted Window was one of the first churches in the Crescenta Valley region, and the land upon which the church was built was donated by the Lanterman family.

I love visiting my sister's ranch in southern Utah. Her vegetable garden spans boldly across an open field, row by row. It appears endless. I love the potato patch. For us city folk it is a little mind blowing to take a shovel and "dig up" what's for dinner. But, neatly tucked underground where they can absorb hefty amounts of nutritional goodness, are this time of year's nutritional powerhouses — root vegetables. For centuries root vegetables have been used for their healing properties.

Lauren Oakes My husband, Royal, is always telling me, “You have to go with the odds.” We are told this all the time by experts in various fields, don’t horribilize and worry about the things that won’t happen, worry about the ones that are likely to happen. When your child has a fever and cough, and you immediately fear West Nile, or viral meningitis, the doc says, “Think horses not zebras, it’s a cold.” When the alert level rises to orange, remember the odds of your being directly involved in any terrorist act, and then go on living your life, issuing a silent thank you that you live in this country.
